The Minnesota Vikings stadium issue appears to inching close to a resolution, but we’ve been here before only to find things going backwards.  However, Roger Goddell’s recent visit seems to have educated the legislators on the reality that the state could lose the franchise in 2013. If that happens, as I’ve mentioned before, it will not matter any good they did in office.  They will only be remembered as the governing body that let a pig part of entire state slip away.

The Minnesota Senate’s Rules Committee has kept the Vikings stadium bill moving and it could be up for a vote by the full Senate before the week is out.

The Rules Committee voted Monday to bypass normal Senate rules and keep the stadium bill alive past standard committee deadlines. One Senate committee moved the bill forward late last week and another is due to review it on Tuesday morning.
